My choice for a career would be Pharmacist. I would like to have the
job of Pharmacist because a Pharmacist is not only a provider of
services to the Community, he is also a beloved Member. If I were a
Pharmacist, I would fill people's prescriptions, also plus I would
check to see if there would be any medicines they shouldn't take
because of cross-reactions.

If I had the job of Pharmacist, I would make the effort to get to know
all of my customers and learn details about their personal lives so we
could make small talk, not counting the ones that only come in once or
twice of course! Also plus too, I could develop little running jokes
with some of them and build on them every time they came in. Like say
for instance there was a guy who was a little overweight, but was a
good sport about it, I would call him "Slim," and every time I saw
him, I would say, "Hey Slim, we need to put some meat on your bones!
For Pete's sake, eat something!" And he would say, "DAVIDHERO, you
old so-and-so, who has time to eat? Gimme a refill of that Slow-K,
also one of the Procardin. How's business?" Then I would say, "Fine,
did you ever get that driveway patched?" And we'd probably go back
and forth like that for a little while. Then when there wasn't
anthing else really to say, he would pay me using Cash or Credit Card,
or another approved method of payment.

DID YOU KNOW: A pharmacist is a man or woman who prepares, stores,
compounds, and dispenses medicine! To be a Pharmacist I would have to
attend College.

In conclusion, my choice for a career is Pharmacist.

Respectfully submitted by,

David Hero

Ozzy Osbourne - Flying High Again

Got a crazy feeling I don't understand
'Gotta get away from here
Feelin' like I shoulda kept my feet on the ground
Waitin' for the sun to appear

Mamma's gonna worry
I been a bad bad boy
No use sayin' sorry
It's something that I enjoy

'Cause you can't see what my eyes see
(I can see it, I can see it)
And you can't be inside of me, flying high again

I can see through the mountains watch me disappear
I can even touch the sky
Swallowing colours of the sound I hear
Am I just a crazy guy. (You bet).

Mamma's gonna worry
I been a bad bad boy
No use sayin' sorry
It's something that I enjoy

If you could be inside my head
You'd see that black and white is read
Flying high again [x 4]
Come on and join me.

Flying high again [x 4]
Come on and join me.

Daddy thinks I'm lazy he don't understand
Never saw inside my head
People think I'm crazy but I'm in demand
Never heard a thing I said.

Mamma's gonna worry

No use sayin' sorry

I've listened to preachers
I've listened to fools
I've watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it and you live the role
Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words
Heirs of a cold war
That's what we've become
Inheriting troubles I'm mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
I'm living with something that just isn't fair
Mental wounds not healing
Who and what's to blame
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

Official 9-11 Story A Lie (-1)

Commienst (102745) | more than 12 years ago | (#3004903)

Russian Air Force Chief Says
Official 9-11 Story Impossible

[Posted 13 September 2001]

As one considers the terrible events of Sept. 11 and observes U.S. media reaction, so pervasive and consistently military that it appears choreographed, doubts increase. The following is from pravda.ru, a Russian language Website (politically centrist, nationalist). In some places the English translation is confusing, so we added alternate phrasing in brackets.
- Jared Israel

[Start report from Russia] "Generally it is impossible to carry out an act of terror on the scenario which was used in the USA yesterday." This was said by the commander-in-chief of the Russian Air Force, Anatoli Kornukov. "We had such facts [i.e., events or incidents] too", - said the general straightforwardly. Kornukov did not specify what happened in Russia and when and to what extent it resembled the events in the US. He did not advise what was the end of air terrorists' attempts either.

But the fact the general said that means a lot. As it turns out the way the terrorists acted in America is not unique. The notification and control system for the air transport in Russia does not allow uncontrolled flights and leads to immediate reaction of the anti-missile defense, Kornukov said. "As soon as something like that happens here, I am reported about that right away and in a minute we are all up," - said the general. [End report from Russia.]

Re:Official 9-11 Story A Lie (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3005169)

historically, communist russia has had little regard for the lives of the proletariat. Mass graves, life sentences to siberia, and secret police taking away citizens in the middle of the night were as prevalent as goatse.cx trolls on slashdot. And with a state-run media, only those who witnessed such events forst hand would know of them (and would keep quiet for fear of retribution). So it's not surprising that a Russian Airforce Commander (who lived most of his life under communism, and was clasiically trained) would not think twice about shooting down a civilian airliner. Besides, most russians look forward to death in order to escape their dreary lives.

In the united states, however, life is more highly regarded (except for the unborn, since abortion is no different than using a condom), so prior to 9/11/01, shooting down a commercial aircraft full of passengers that had been hijacked would have caused a national uproar, a dozen congressional hearings, and rioting.

Post 9/11, we all realize that destroying a plane and killing all on board is a better solution than watching a hijacked plane crash into a building, killing all on board as well as thousands of others, something the Pennsylvania passengers realized as well.

Considering that Russia has gotten their asses kicked by just about everyone (chechnya, China, Afghanistan, Germany, etc), their bravado is most interesting.

Intel's approach (5, Insightful)

drink85cent (558029) | more than 12 years ago | (#3004924)

I think Intel does need to jump off it's approach to sales by clock speed.

Maybe instead of constantly worrying about clock speeds they spend more research into being able to add larger amounts of cache or try to achieve one clock cycle access to main memory

Yes chips will most likely continue to follow moore's law but computers are not much faster now than 2 years ago

what their worries should be

  • Improve memory speed
  • Make instruction set more efficient (ie make alu more efficient, the intel is no RISC)
  • reduce production costs

Re:Intel's approach (2, Insightful)

Rebel Patriot (540101) | more than 12 years ago | (#3004946)

I agree. The reason the Athlon proccesors are so much faster in benchmarks isn't the clock-speed, but the memory bottle-neck. Athlon's run with half the level2 cache yet they still are faster. Why? 233 MHz front-side bus speed.

Re:Intel's approach (2, Redundant)

Toraz Chryx (467835) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005099)

moderators: Why is this informative when it's wrong?

the Althon has a double pumped 133Mhz bus (equivalent bandwidth to a normal 266Mhz bus)

the P4 on the other hand, has a QUAD pumped 100Mhz bus (equivalent to a normal 400Mhz bus)

there's a reason the P4 lays the smack down in memory benchmarks guys... ('tis a shame it sits around doing nothing with the data it actually gets from memory though :)

Althons are faster because the core itself is MUCH faster per clock, lets see..

P4 x87 FPU = single execution unit
Althon x87 FPU = THREE execution units

the Althon is something of a brute force design, but it's an ELEGANT brute force design :)

Bzzzt, wrong! Athlons are faster in terms of useful work done per clock because they have a shorter instruction pipeline. Thus their branch mispredict penalty is lower and they have a higher instruction-throughput-rate (ITR) than Intel chips of equal clock speed. Other factors (exclusive L1/L2 cache, lower memory latency, better die space allocation to ALUs and FPUs) influence AMD's higher performance too, but this is the main one. It's just a better balanced processor design, and it certainly yields higher performance for price.

BTW, current DDR memory speed is 2 x 133 Mhz = 266 Mhz, not 233 Mhz.

Re:Intel's approach (3, Interesting)

Toraz Chryx (467835) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005179)

I'd argue that the weak IPC (especially FP) has more to do with the P4's weakass floating point execution unit than the length of the pipeline, yes, branch mispredicts to hurt performance, but the performance they are hurting isn't all that high anyway :/

Well, that's Itanium, and see what it got them... (3, Interesting)

mbessey (304651) | more than 12 years ago | (#3004954)

Basically, Itanium was designed to address the "efficiency" issue, as well as enabling faster turnaround on new designs with a simpler core.

We all know how that turned out, don't we? Fundamentally, Intel is trapped by their own success. They haven't successfully introduced a really new architecture since the i860/i960, and that was YEARS ago.

People don't want "efficient" ot "elegant" processors. They want MegaHertz.

A man chases a woman, catches her, throws her on the floor. He pulls
down his trousers, lifts her dress and removes her slip. He then starts to
stab her between her legs with his penis. He stabs her furiously, savagely,
bestially, viciously and perversely. He continues to stab her, stabs her
again and again and now and then insulting her with obscene words. He takes
vicious pleasure in seeing the woman at his mercy and enduring his perverse
sexual assault.

Three articles are reproduced below to show how heterosexuals are murderous,
abnormal, perverted, sinful and dirty.

Heterosexuals are beasts and filthy

Heterosexuals like to criticise others when they have themselves many more
faults, defects, vices and perversions.

Heterosexuals are monsters. In 1999, in a few days heterosexuals committed
many monstrous crimes. In Egypt a man stabbed the lover of his wife 300
times and then cut his head. In Israel a man set fire to the house of his
wife, killing his wife and his children. In atlanta, USA a man killed his
wife and children and then killed 9 other people.
Heterosexuals are beasts. Heterosexuality is bestiality.

Some time ago, in belgium, a pastor and his daughter with whom he had
an incestuous relationship killed 10 people. 5 were members of their family.
The two heterosexuals got rid of their victims by dissolving their bodies in
acid. The heterosexual man was a pastor and a theology teacher.

In Gloucester, Great Britain, frederick and rosemary West who were
husband and wife, killed and buried 18 persons. Some were their children.

In the eighties, a heterosexual man in california raped, tortured and
killed more than 15 women. the man took sadistic pleasures in seeing the
women suffered. One of his methods was to cut them with an electric saw. The
man took pleasure in seeing the women shouting in terrible pain.

Several years ago in South America (Colombia) a heterosexual man raped
and killed more than 100 girls.

In France the parents of a 5 year old boy martyrized the little boy
for years. They beated him and imprisoned him in a little cage. They took
pleasure in seeing the little boy suffered.

A few years ago in France a Head of school killed the prostitute he was
frequenting because the prostitute no longer wanted him.

There are many other cases of heterosexual atrocities.

hear about heinous crimes committed by heterosexuals.

Heterosexuals like to brag and threaten people about many things. Then for
offences and crimes they must be punished more severely because they have no
extenuating circumstances.

There are only three possibilities for them. Either they are shut in
psychiatric hospitals or they are shut in prisons or they are executed.

It is not because many parents are heterosexual that they are perfect. Many
parents and heterosexuals want only to satisfy their vicious desires.
Children are just the result of their vices. It is not that because
something is necessary that it is perfect. Excrement is necessary and it is
not perfect. Heterosexuals are like excrement. They are not perfect, they
are disgusting and wicked.

Heterosexuality is no longer necessary to have children. Artificial
Insemination is replacing it.

Some heterosexuals say that they have to fornicate to ensure the survival
of humankind. Their argument does not convince at all. First we do not need
so many children on this earth. On the contrary it will be better if they
stop copulating and fornicating. There will be less vices and less problems
caused by heterosexuals and overpopulation. If those heterosexuals stop
copulating and do not have children we will not regret at all. We will
rejoice because there will be less problems and more resources available for
people existing on earth. It is better to have quality than quantity.
Secondly to have children, heterosexuals do not need to have so many
copulations. They have thousands times more copulations than necessary. It
is as if an employee is asking thousands times more money for the real value
of a job or a seller is making people pay thousands times more than the real
value of an article.

If those heterosexuals stop copulating the world will be a better place. The
world do not need those type of people. There are people more than necessary
on this earth. There are also enough smart people on this earth. Many
problems (crimes, vices, theft, exploitation, etc) caused by heterosexuals
will disappear. So we say, let them stop copulating and having children.

Heterosexuals are the greatest killers and the greatest perverts

Heterosexuals are the greatest killers. Since the beginning of the world
heterosexuals have killed as many as the increase in population at a
particular period and sometimes much more. For example in 1970 there were 4
billions people. Now there are 6 billions people. In 30 years the population
has increased by 2 billions. In the same period heterosexuals have killed
approximately the same number of people.

From 1970 to 1999 an average of 50 millions abortions were perpetrated each
year by heterosexuals (Data from United Nations and World Health
Organization). This means that in 30 yrs, 50x30=1500 millions abortions have
been committed. Heterosexuals are guilty of 1.5 billions abortions in that
period of time. Heterosexuals are guilty of this holocaust and genocide of
children. Heterosexuals are worst than the Nazis.

Heterosexuals committed about 150 crimes per year per million people. From
1970 to 1999 the average world population was 5 billions, that is 5000
millions people. Therefore each year heterosexuals committed 5000x150=750000
crimes. For 30 years they committed 30x750000=22,500,000 crimes.

During that period heterosexuals killed also about 100 millions people in
wars (soldiers and civil population).

. . . and I don't care how Intel gets it.

Who cares if Intel (or anyone else) makes chip n+1 perform better than chip n through clock cycle speedups, fiddling with cache arrangements, implementing faster-than-light wiring systems on the die :-) . . . whatever. As long as it works faster and cheaper than last year's, what does it matter beyond idle curiosity?

And why not turn lead into gold while we're at it. (4, Interesting)

Christopher Thomas (11717) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005194)

Maybe instead of constantly worrying about clock speeds they spend more research into being able to add larger amounts of cache or try to achieve one clock cycle access to main memory

I'm afraid that both of these (especially the last one) sound like the infamous "let's just find a way to factor huge numbers" quote. That is - yes, it would be wonderful to be able to do this, but there are good reasons for believing that it's very difficult (not that people haven't tried).

For caches, the problem is that larger caches are slower and more power-hungry. To compensate, you use a multilevel cache architecture, but you still have some penalties. A modern foundry could put as much cache as it wanted on to a chip (look at HP's most recent chip for an example) - but because of architectural tradeoffs, this isn't always a good idea.

For memory, if you can find a way to get single-clock access latencies reliably without a 10x slower clock, sell it to $favourite_company and retire on the proceeds. This isn't likely to happen for _two_ reasons. Firstly, modern memory is optimized for density at the expense of speed (this is why we use DRAM and not SRAM for system memory). Secondly, because of the trace lengths, capacitance (and inductance!), and crosstalk and noise issues, it's one _hell_ of a lot harder to send data at low latency _or_ low bandwidth across a motherboard than just within a chip.

There are ways of pushing the boundaries on all of these things, but while we're doing that, processor speeds are still getting faster, putting tougher requirements on the memory and negating most of the relative gain.

In summary, there's a good reason that Intel (along with everyone else) is pursuing more conventional enhancements while background research into memory and caches is going on.

Re:Intel's approach (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3005232)

"I think Intel does need to jump off it's approach to sales by clock speed."

Finding a good balance between ILP and clock speeds is extremely hard. I tend to agree that P4's pipeline is a bit too deep. I am not sure if they decided to make it such purely because of marketing reasons.

"Maybe instead of constantly worrying about clock speeds they spend more research into being able to add larger amounts of cache or try to achieve one clock cycle access to main memory"

Of course, and I'm sure they are indeed working very hard to improve L1 and L2 cache sizes and speeds. The upcoming McKinley will have 3 MB of L3 cache on die! Pretty impressive if you ask me. I'm not sure what you mean by "one clock cycle access to main memory". Are you talking about the CPU clock? If so, you obviously have no idea how DRAMs work. But if you know how to accomplish something like that, quickly, patent the idea. You will become super-rich and win at least one Nobel prize.

"Improve memory speed"
In case you're talking about main memories, you should know that Intel is not a DRAM developer. If you're talking about on-die cache memories you can be assured that Intel is working very hard to improve it.

"Make instruction set more efficient (ie make alu more efficient, the intel is no RISC)"
Well, yes and no. Modern x86 CPUs do, in fact, have RISC cores. They also have giant decoders that decode x86 instructions and break them into RISC instructions (so-called micro-instructions). This, of course, does add to the overhead. Hence IA-64.

"reduce production costs"
Heh, no offense, but that sounds like Dilbert's boss comment: "We need to reduce production costs and increase efficiency". :)

Somebody didn't read the article (1)

Glonk (103787) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005237)

I think Intel does need to jump off it's approach to sales by clock speed.
They don't work on that assumption. Do you see the Itanium working at 100GHz?

The reason the Pentium 4 has a longer pipeline is because you need a longer pipeline for SMT to work properly with x86 processors. That, and the chip was designed for multimedia, where most of the time the long pipeline is far more beneficial than a deteriment to performance.

I don't care how many GHz it is, I don't care what its IPC is, what I care about is what the GHz * IPC is.

Maybe instead of constantly worrying about clock speeds they spend more research into being able to add larger amounts of cache or try to achieve one clock cycle access to main memory
They already have the technology to add larger amounts of cache. It's just not economical to do so, simply because of all the transistors it takes...

Improve memory speed
Last time I checked, Intel didn't design system memory.
Although it does (by far) have the most bandwidth available to the CPU out of any consumer CPU out there.

Make instruction set more efficient (ie make alu more efficient, the intel is no RISC)
You mean like ditching x86 and designing IA-64?

reduce production costs
Sure, Intel will magically wave a wand and make their production costs drop like a rock. Doesn't work like that. ;)

Almost as absurd as the idea of Intel backing out of their IA-64 development in favor of x86-64 is the unfortunate perception that the world's largest desktop microprocessor manufacturer is not driven by engineering but rather by marketing.

th very first sentence in this article states th perception th article is focussed on diminishing

today we'll be showing you the Intel that doesn't care about anything outside of making fast, reliable and powerful circuits.

really? - as a for-profit company, perhaps their shareholders might be interested in them making maximum profit as well?

and who is this 'we' - only a single authour is mentioned at th top of th article - or perhaps his name has simply been appended to a pre-prepared puff piece?

"Hey, Dr. Bobkowicz. Did you want to talk about that new human-computer interaction experiment now?" "Actually, yes." "Hey, why do you have that aluminum bat?" Blackness. Then sharp pain on my forehead. I awoke to find myself naked and chained to a wall in a room that while it was similarly decorated (plain white walls, no windows, cheap, gray carpet and gray, rubber molding) to the lab, it wasn't a room I recognized. Dr. Bobkowicz returned with another person whose face I couldn't quite recognize. She was carrying a large object in her hands, although my vision was still too blurry to make out what it was. "Ah, I see you're awake now. Now I would like to talk about that new study. This time, my faithful assisstant, you are the subject." "I'm the subject? But I didn't sign any consent form for your BDSM fantasy! I -" "Ah, but I don't need your consent." "But, the IRB [nih.gov] ! And what are you holding?" "This? Oh, it's an electric shrub pruner, which brings us to the first phase of the experiment. I'm going to make you into a cyborg... running Windows XP!" "What?!? Fuck off, you horrible monster! This body bleeds seven colors [slashdot.org] !" By this point my vision was beginning to come back into focus and I really didn't like how she was brandishing that electric pruner, especially since I could now see all of its shiny, metallic, sharp teeth in perfect detail. "Yes, and I'm going to make some Windows in you so I can take a peek at all those processes occupying your CPU time! Ha ha! You're supposed to laugh at my little joke, flunky." At this point, her new assisstant, a large, balding 40's-ish man, erupted in forced laughter. "That's enough, Steve. Now then, first thing's first. You won't be needing that anymore..." Zzsst! Just like that, my dick was gone. "You bitch! I needed that to jack off with!" "Well, no more. Connect the serial port now!" "Serial port? But that's obsolete technology!" "Hmmph! Next you'll be trying to tell me that floppy drives are obsolete, too. Install the serial port, Steve." "No, no! The IRB will make you pay for this, bitch!"

* 24 hours in midnight to midnight.
* 24 hours in sunup to sunup...........
* 24 hours in midday to midday.....
* 24 hours in sundown to sundown.
* 4 days in only 1 Earth rotation...
* 4 simultaneous years of the seasons.
* No infinite days within 96 hours.
* 4 different directions in clockwise.
* 3 days lost to academic stupidity.

There are 4 simultaneous days

Earth has perfect vertical axis:
The Earth axis tilt represents an inperfection
upon which life is based. If the Earth axis was perfectly vertical, there would be no divisions
of life as in seasons and therefore no life. Earth
rotates 4 simultaneous seasons simultaneously
as it revolves around the Sun, thus creating 4
simultaneous years as in a separate year for
each season. The spinning of Earth while
creating the 4 simultaneous years causes the
Earth to travel 4 Times the distance of a non
rotating planet circling the Sun. Sumup the
axis tilt of those 4 simultaneous years and
divide by 4 to discover a perfectly vertical
Earth axis which represents the perfection of
death. Though you only see the Earth tilt,
mentally, you should recognize that Earth
has a perfectly vertical axis over all. The
straight line on the heart monitor equates
to the perfectionof death. The oscillation or
imperfection of that straight line, represents
the imperfection of all created life on Earth
depicted in Nature's Harmonic Time Cube.

You are probably brainwashed, indoctrinated, educated stupid and cannot comprehend
Nature's Harmonic Simultaneous 4Day
Perpetual Time Cube Creation.

When the Sun shines upon Earth,
2 major Time points are created
on opposite sides of Earth known
as Midday and Midnight. Where
the 2 major Time forces join, synergy
creates 2 new minorTime points we
recognize as Sunup and Sundown.

The 4equidistant Time points can be
considered as Time Square imprinted
upon the circle of Earth. In a single
rotation of the Earth sphere, each
Time corner point rotates through
the other 3corner Time points, thus
creating 16 corners, 96 hours and
4simultaneous 24 hour Days within
a single rotation of Earth equated
to a Higher Order of Life Time Cube.
Ignorance of the Time Cube is evil.

Education induces Stupidity. Explain

not have the mind or education

Proving Human Stupidity

Revelations 7.1 recognizes 4 Earth Corners.






You WordMurder Your Children.

Human metamorphosis has 4corner
lifetime stages known as baby,child,
parent and grandparent. Biblegod
equates 1corner and bare Earth for
children. 4corner Truth is ineffable
and no self or god can speak Truth.
Only baby is born.Adult is not born.
Without metamorphosis no adults.

If Earth stood still, it would have midday, midnight, sunup and sundown as 4 corners. Each rotation of earth has 4 middays, 4 midnights, 4 sunups and 4 sundowns.
The sixteen(16) space times demonstrates cube proof of 4 full days simultaneously on earth within one (1) rotation. The academia created 1 day greenwich time is bastardly queer and dooms future youth and nature to a hell.

Ignorance of 4 day harmonic cubic nature indicts humans as unfit to live on earth.

Gene Ray, Cubic

The Wisest Human

I will give $1,000.00 to any person who can
disprove 4 days in each earth rotation. It's
a pity that religious and academic word is a
crime against Nature and enslaves Children.
4cornered Truth is ineffable by man or god.
Until Word is Cornered, all Math is Fiction.

I've got anal warts, too. AT first I was scared, then upset, then mad, but I've learned to accept them.

Once, I was drunk and did take the direct approach; "Hi, I've got anal warts, do you want to fuck?", but on second thought it was a bad idea. Also, if a give sees you scratching your asshole all day long ... it just doesn't turn them on.

No need to tell her you have anal warts right away. She might not notice, and if you give them to her, you can claim she gave them to you! Once, after giving a girl anal warts, I was drunk and fucked her up the ass. If you think anal warts are bad, wait until you get nutsack warts!

10 Ghz ALU = 5Ghz CPU (4, Informative)

kawaichan (527006) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005086)

All the Pentium 4 ALUs are double pumped, that means a Pentium 4 running at 2.2 Ghz's ALU is running at 4.4Ghz.

And you are still wondering why Pentium 4 is still slower than the Athlon (or awfully close)

Imagine what would happen if the ALU is only running at the same speed as the CPU.

Personally, Intel is losing little ground at a time right now, but remember, Intel can afford to make a couple of mistakes but AMD can't even afford to make on. One mistake will push AMD back to the bottom, again.

Close, but no cigar (4, Interesting)

Glonk (103787) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005196)

The 10GHz ALU shown was run at room temperature, and was not actually a Pentium 4 ALU at all. While it is true the Pentium 4's ALUs are double pumped, that's because they're actually 16-bit (16 x 2 = 32-bit, thus double pumped).

The 10GHz ALU was a very limited ALU, not part of any modern processor.

Intel is losing little ground at a time right now
Actually, in Q4 2001 Intel gained market share and AMD lost some. But overall in 2001, AMD did gain market share, that's true.

I still think it's because Intel wants to point to AMD and say "See? Competition!". ;)

Intel could easily release faster CPUs right now to totally crush the Athlon, but it doesn't make sense to do so.

AMD Still Has Upper Hand (4, Informative)

citking (551907) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005093)

Intel chips, while more commonplace in store-bought computers, still do not measure up to the performance and reliability of AMD. I started long ago with an Intel Celeron 300 slot chipset (hey, I was new to this computer thing; please be gentle!). Later, when I wised up, I built a whole new system around a Duron 750 Socket A. Much better. Even when I ran comparisons on my Duron 750 to faster Intel 3 chips the results were very similar: The Duron outperformed the Intel in just about every aspect! Not only that, but when you consider what clock speed one gets for their dollar, the AMD series has always been faster for cheaper. Reliability is also a factor that goes against Intel. I have heard many horror stories of chips that had great heatsinks and excellent fans, but they still overheated with no overclocking involved. My co-worker, however, runs an awe-inspiring water-cooling system that has leaked many times (poor guy is great at computers, lousy at plumbing) but despite water sitting literally on the chip, the AMD Athlon he was running showed no signs of damage. But, to be fair, I can't just compare prices and reliability. Intel and AMD chips have many, many differences to set them apart. The whole deal breaks down to this, though: When I wanted to upgrade recently to the Athlon XP, I didn't have to go out and buy a new motherboard, different memory, and a special power supply. Actually, all I needed was the chip. Until Intel can effectively compete with AMD's performance, reliability, and cost, I will never, ever own another Intel board again.

which one caught fire again? (-1)

ArchieBunker (132337) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005166)

Oh wait its AMD whose cpu catches fire with no heatsink. Maybe they should have spent the extra penny or two on a real thermal sensor and not some diode, which BTW is not what that components designed for. Temperature change in diodes is more of a side effect. Personally I won't buy a cpu from a company that catches fire and requires a team of surveyors to position the heatsink or risk breaking the die.

Re:which one caught fire again? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3005187)

You are so fucking right.
I burned my Athlon 1.0 when onboard fan connector died ...
Well, I still run Athlon , this time 1.1 for even with its flaws it is still cheaper than Intel.

Re:AMD Still Has Upper Hand (2, Troll)

Glonk (103787) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005203)

Intel chips, while more commonplace in store-bought computers, still do not measure up to the performance and reliability of AMD.
Let's drop the act. :)

Intel CPUs are just as reliable as AMD, if not more. AMD CPUs rely on motherboard logic to stop overheating and subsequent fires/melting, Intel CPU's have them built in. AMD CPUs are FAR more likely to crack/shatter installing HSFs due to how the sockets are designed, too. Your reliability argument is simply nonexistant.

As for performance, there are instances where the Pentium 4 is king, there are instances where the Athlon XP is king. There's no clear performance leader.

Athlons are cheaper, but take some shortcuts. Still damn fast, still damn cheap. Lots of people love that.

Re:AMD Still Has Upper Hand (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3005263)

Informative?!? WTF?
Even when I ran comparisons on my Duron 750 to faster Intel 3 chips the results were very similar
Which chips? Benchmarks even? Intel 3 chips? What apps and aspects? I'm a fan of AMD, competition, value versus marketing hype, but let's get real. Intel still is at least a competative technical leader. Right now, the race is tight, and until we see the next generation of stuff from AMD (Morgan, Hammer, et al), we do not know how things will fall.
Reliability is also a factor that goes against Intel. I have heard many horror stories of chips that had great heatsinks and excellent fans, but they still overheated with no overclocking involved.
I really wonder about that reliability bit considering that the Athlon is well known as dissipating more heat than almost any Intel chip even if you compare chips at equilivant execution speed.
When I wanted to upgrade recently to the Athlon XP, I didn't have to go out and buy a new motherboard, different memory, and a special power supply.
Funny, that's what I was thinking about when I was going to upgrade from my Pentium II (Slot 1) to an Athlon (Slot A) when I could have upgraded to a Pentium III (Slot 1). Change with the times or get left behind.

The Aspiring Slashdot Joker Part I (-1, Offtopic)

prizzznecious (551920) | more than 12 years ago | (#3005178)

Guide to the Slashdot Joke ver .1

Greetings, denizens of the Slashdot. If you have read Slashdot commentary with any attention, you have noticed that certain posts receive moderation points with the qualifier "Funny." You may also have noticed, if have experience with non-Linux OS's, that these posts do make you smile, laugh, urinate, or any of the more popular responses to things that would normally be considered "Funny." Indeed, the Slashdot has birthed a new linguistic classification; I propose to call it the "Slashdot Joke," for reasons that are hopefully quite apparent.

So! You wish to become a Slashdot Joker? Easier typed than done! But let us endeavor no less assiduously in the face of difficulty.

The first thing you must understand in order to be a Slashdot Joker is that the Slashdot Joke does not make you laugh because it was never intended to be funny. That is correct; what's more, no sense of humor is required to craft a Slashdot Joke. The Slashdot Joke is a purely manipulative phenomenon with a specific desired outcome, in most respects quite similar to deftly used GHB. A Slashdot Joke [GHB] compels a Slashdot Moderator [svelte vixen (or otherwise, but let it be svelte, if you please!)] to give you karma [let you stick your dirty penis wherever you please].

The key to proper manipulation is to know the weaknesses of your target. In this case, your target will be Slashdot Moderators. While you can glean a better understanding of this from even minimal observation, I will clue you in to a few basic rules. Slashdot Moderators are all nerds. Some Trolls would have you believe that all Slashdot Moderators use the Linux; this is a common misconception, as most Slashdot Readers (of which Moderators are a subset) use the Microsoft Windows. However, remember my first statement: Slashdot Moderators are all nerds. We all know the Microsoft Windows is easier to use than the Linux; most nerds like to pretend that they are very intimate with their computers (note that some truly are, but that this practice is frowned upon in most circles). In other words, most Slashdot Moderators will support the dominant Slashdot paradigm, which is that the Linux is the greatest, coolest, hippest, free-est, rockingest, insert-your-fetish-here-est OS in the known universe. They take the Linux very seriously. If you do not know much about the Linux, you should go here [aol.com] . That will give you some understanding of the type of people you are working with.

Nerds are very insecure, by definition. If someone is smart and secure (do not take their word for it, though), they will not be a nerd, no matter how much they know about computers, or how much they like Tolkien. Nerdism is insecurity. Therefore, to the novice Slashdot Joker, stroking Slashdot Moderator egos is crucial. Once you have mastered this basic strategy, you can move on to advanced Slashdot Joking (which I will address later), but for now, pace yourself. There are many mod points to be earned from this tried and true method.

Bearing that in mind, let us discuss Slashdot Joking practically. First of all, it is very important to make your joke so quickly as you possibly can. This is because of the following. Real jokes are often absurd and silly; that is why they make us laugh. On the Slashdot, however, Offtopic posts are treated most unkindly. Since a real (funny) joke would almost never be strictly Ontopic in a Slashdot thread (except for the time when CmdrTaco brilliantly stated that he needed a new rubber for his "Jackbot"), this is the most dangerous aspect of Slashdot Joking. Do not allow your sense of humor to ruin your Slashdot Joke! Slashdot Jokes must pertain directly to the topic at hand. For this reason, the most effective Slashdot Jokes will make direct use of the wording of the actual post being discussed (referencing even the linked article is usually too removed--anyway, the Slashdot Moderators almost never read the articles, so they will know no better). Furthermore, Slashdot Jokes should avoid carrying any additional content, as this new content may be actually funny and subsequently Offtopic.

Since adding content is dangerous, the most reliable option available to the would-be Slashdot Joker is the Pun. Most civilized societies long ago made all but the most subtly wrought puns serious social blunders. In truth, this works to your advantage as a Slashdot Joker in multiple ways. For the idiot Slashdot Moderators who look only at the subject of your pun (and scan it for "Microsoft," "RIAA," or other hot Slashdot Topics), the pun is nothing more than a symbol; they take it as a warming confirmation that they belong to a community because they can recognize this pun as part of the Slashdot paradigm. For the even more idiotic Slashdot Moderators who hubristically think that they are above the fray, your pun will be a clever, recursive in-joke. To manipulate these guys, all you have to do is appear to be somewhat intelligent, and they will fabricate the rest in their fecund imaginations. How quaint, they will smugly think, a pun! Do not be afraid to incorporate programming syntax into your pun, even though your real sense of humor may ache at the thought. Many Slashdot Moderators consider programming to be the most breathtakingly sexy thing possible, and so they aspire to project the image that they consider programming syntax so second nature as being capable of conveying humor. Remember, they will not actually be able to find your Slashdot Joke funny, but they will recognize your syntax and mod you up according to the rules of "Funny."

If you have enjoyed reading this and would like this project to continue, please respond saying so! If you did not like it, and think that I am a bag of shit, that input is also welcome. I can take it! Thank you, and peace be on your house!
